Why you should take a seat at the table, with Jim Gildea - Bigelow Tea

Nov 1, 2022

This episode is a great conversation with Jim Gildea, Director of Manufacturing at Bigelow Tea.

Jim talks about getting involved in the educational system and encourages other companies to take a seat at the table to help develop curriculum needed for tomorrow's jobs.





Jim and Ari talk about the great people-first culture at Bigelow and its effect on employee retention. 

Jim also tells us all about the really cool manufacturing technology and robotics that make Bigelow run smoothly, but never displace a worker.
